A new trailer has been released which shows the game’s infected enemies in action. It also explains Naughty Dog’s reasoning for designing them that way.
Neil Druckman, Creative Director, explained that the inspiration for the Infected came from a BBC documentary (Planet Earth) explaining fungus dangers. The studio then began to explore the potential threat of such a fungus if it jumped to humans.
The game’s key evil is the fungus instead of the human looters Joel and Ellie.
Listen to the very creepy sound in the trailer below and let us know what you think by posting your comments.
